Simply Betty Stamps - Challenge #1!!

Hello!!  I am SOOOOOO beyond excited to be here to introduce you OFFICIALLY to the Simply Betty Challenge blog!!  

Today we're starting Challenge #1.  The challenge is as follows:

Today we have a Pattern Color Combo... create a card, a scrapbook page, or any project at all using the both the pattern and the color, or just one of the two. (Yep those are Betty's funky socks!)

My project pulled more of the wacky pattern than the rainbow colors from our Fabulous Betty's socks!!  I went with Drewdigi as my image.  She's SOOOOOOOOO cute!!!  Yet a little fresh at the same time.  Sweet and sassy...just my style!!

I went with a palette of blues, purples and hot pink. 

My card base is a midnight navy - from The Paper Source (I think?).  My next layer is a medium purple which happens to be the reverse side of the bubbley blue, pink and white paper which is layered next!!

I printed the gorgeous Drewdigi onto ivory cardstock and colored her with my Prismacolor pencils.  I then trimmed her out - with more margins than I normally would but I was worried that her tail would be too thin and I'd end up accidentally chopping it off!  LOL!  But I totally love her presence with the wider trimmed margins.

I then added a few haphazardly placed purple bling rhinestones and a strip of silver pearls. My sentiment of "meow" uses chocolate brown, glittery letters.

I hope you enjoy and have been inspired!!

Please come play along!!!!
